ABC’s ‘Selfie’ Seems Destined For Failure
We are a society that is certainly obsessed with social media. Posting pics, where we are, who we’re with, this is just the norm these days. ABC has decided to turn this social media obsession into a full blown TV show about social media reform.
As someone who’s job it is to manage social media I am fully engrossed in this world. However, I’m not some crazy person who has turned into a social media obsessed hermit either. I have real friends and a real life.
The message of this show is pretty clear. STOP POSTING EVERYTHING! Experience the real world for a little bit.
“Selfie” seems like a show that is geared towards old people. The people who hate social media, smartphones and the faces book. So will a younger audience tune in? Probably not. Why would they tune in for a show that in knocking their life style? I give this show half a season before it gets the network ax.
